Brokeback Wins Best Feature at Independent Spirit Awards

Brokeback Wins Best Feature at Independent Spirit Awards
Four films took home two honors each at the Independent Spirit Awards, including Best Feature winner Brokeback Mountain. The heavy Oscar favorite also nabbed Best Director for Ang Lee (also Oscar nominated ), and the acting winners were also four people who will be attending the Academy Awards on Sunday: Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote), Felicity Huffman (Transamerica), Matt Dillon (Crash), and Amy Adams (Junebug). Winning two alongside Brokeback were Capote (Best Male Lead and Screenplay), Transamerica (Best Female Lead and First Screenplay), and Crash (Best Supporting Male and First Feature). Also taking home awards were the aforementioned Junebug, Good Night, and Good Luck (Cinematography), Paradise Now (Foreign Film), and in a bit of surprise, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, which bested Grizzly Man for the documentary award. Sadly, the most nominated film, The Squid and the Whale, walked away with nothing.
